On Tuesday 30 May a Workshop on “Realizzazione e Comunicazione di Servizi Climatici per il Settore Turistico del Parco Nazionale della Sila nell’ambito del Progetto INDECIS” has been organized by CNR-IRPI – office of Cosenza -, Ente Parco Nazionale della Sila and University “Rovira i Virgili” of Tarragona (Spain). The Workshop, that will be held in the “Centro Visita Cupone” of the Parco Nazionale della Sila, is part of the European INDECIS Project (Integrated approach for the development across Europe of user oriented climate indicators for GFCS high-priority sectors: agriculture, disaster risk reduction, energy, health, water and tourism). The project, coordinated by Enric Aguillar of the University Rovira i Virgili/Center for Climate Change (C3) of Tarragona – Spain, has a partnership composed by researchers of Institutes and Universities coming from 12 EU Countries. Roberto Coscarelli (CNR-IRPI – Office of Cosenza) is one of the Principal Investigators.

The Sila Park has been chosen as study Area in the Project for the tourism sector. The Workshop includes two sessions: the first one having relations of experts in the climate and tourism sectors (project participants and from the Centro Funzionale Multirischi of ARPACAL) and a second one based on the focus groups. Each focus group will be composed by local tourism stakeholders (parks, hotel owners, tourism associations and agencies, etc.) and by climate experts. In this way, the stakeholders will put in evidence, based on their needs and knowledge, their expectations relatively to the climate services that are the aims of the INDECIS Project.
